I have been at back to back conferences this past week in Houston, Texas and Ontario, California. Both of these conferences were extremely different, one was Passion (a College-Age conference) and one was Children’s Pastors Conference. But, its funny how, not matter where you are or what the context, if God is wanting to speak to you He will. If He is trying to get a message to you, you will hear it. Let me just say, I heard it loud and clear this past week. GO!!
He says in Matthew 28 (Great Commission), “Go and make disciples..”
But lets be honest, have you ever been overwhelmed by that? I mean think about it.
You are sitting in church or a bible study and the speaker says, now therefore “Go” and your pumped up, but your like “Go where?”
And, they say, “and make disciples”
And you think “I can maybe do that, I don’t necessarily feel completely equipped, but maybe I can check this one off?”
Then they say, “of all nations” and your like “should I go on a mission trip for two weeks, does that count?”….
And “baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirt, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” Yikes, your like “oh no, I need to read my bible… and study more.” It’s overwhelming.
